I've noticed the delay on switching to another vt. You don't need to press enter btw, it appears by itself eventually, but I didn't know what was causing the wait. I'd prefer to have the shell appear instantly than having text that says you need to wait!
After digging, this is an obscure systemd thing. Whenever you switch to a new vt, systemd tries (again) to activate the subiquity_config.mount unit we added to support CI. This waits for 90s for a device node to appear. Because getty@.service is Type=idle it tries to wait until no jobs are running before actually starting the process, but it gives up after 5s and starts the job anyway. I think the fix is to override the timeout on the .device unit to 0s, which I'll do with a livecd-rootfs change. Having some kind of general introductory text accessible from the first screen you see which could explain how to get to a vt and some other basics would make sense. ** Also affects: livecd-rootfs (Ubuntu) Importance: Undecided Status: New -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1750117 Title: No obvious way to get to console To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/subiquity/+bug/1750117/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
